  2. Jason says:

    If you haven’t already, cut ELMG from this group. The action this month has totally destroyed the weekly chart setup and it just gave up daily chart final support in the last two days. We’ll take the -18.5% pounding and throw in the towel.

  3. Jason says:

    We’ll take some profits here. Long term holders or those with large positions may want to hold some open as there is a good chance we will come back to these again later.

    NWPX +18.8%

    CLR +30.2%

    KOG +36.5%

    WGOV +14.8%

  4. Jason says:

    For those looking to add positions consider:

    Water Plays – CCC, INSU, LNN

    Oil & Gas – ATW, PBR, RIG

    Ag/Commodity – MEA, MTL

    Brazilian Banks – BBD, ITU, UBB

    China (Olympics) – VISN

  5. Jason says:

    Ok, time to take some more profits. I reluctantly suggest booking the following:

    ATW +20.4%

    NGS +16.8%

    MEA + 27.9%

    All great charts that may go much higher yet; but I’ll be patient and take the lower risk gains for now. As before, long term holders or those with large positions may want to hold some of the positions open as there is a very good chance we will come back to these again later.

    China (Olympics) – VISN

  7. Jason says:

    Ok, time for a new Bakken play. For all you Cra-maniacs, I’m jumping on the NOG train. We’ve got an opener at $12. Would love to pick some up under $9.

    NOG – Bakken

  8. Jason says:

    For those looking to add positions consider:

    WGOV (again) +26.1%

    And trimming the energy exposure with a few losses.

    CRZO -20.4%

    XTO -22.4%

    We still like all of these stocks.

    Not being greedy with the profits.

    Surprised by the rapid deterioration in energy stocks.

  11. Jason says:

    Looks like we missed one yesterday.

    MTL -30.0% (including dividend)

    INSU -0.8%

    Long term holders or those with large positions may want to hold some open as there is a good chance we will come back to these again later.

    More oil plays stop out.

  26. Jason says:

    The last Ag play stops out.

    CF -28.4%

  27. Jason says:

    Really disappointing finish here, especially with the great opening first month. The meltdown in energy and commodity stocks was unexpected and vicious. We left many profits on the table.

    Overall we were down just over 5% before commissions for the four months. The S&P 500 dropped over 11% during this time. Even with the losses in the end, we were able to beat the S&P 500 by over two to one. It helps when you make almost 7.5% in the first four weeks and book an average gain over 18% on your first 8 closed trades.

    A shorter holding time, as we use in the Security Growth Alert, would have helped this set of trades immensely. We were looking to develop a longer holding period portfolio here, but the market did not cooperate. This is not an investor’s market as the hyperactivity only leaves small windows of profit for the most agile of traders.
